He opened the ceremony and presented the National Merit Commendation scholarships as well as the All Star student awards.

Red Wing's Patrick Herzog failed to advance to the state Class AA meet after a disappointing round Tuesday at Bellwood Oaks Golf Club in the Section 1AA meet. I say disappointing, although most people would consider shooting three-over par a fantastic round. But Herzog can do much better. Right now, Herzog is bummed. He had a legitimate chance to win a state title. Months of hard work and dedication did not pay off. Did he choke? No. He just didn't hit the ball well. And anyone who has played competitive golf knows that can happen from time to time.
Minnesotans can count themselves among the millions of Americans who will realize lower taxes following the federal tax cut signed by President Bush this week. Residents of other states won't be as fortunate. Minnesotans' good fortune is due in large part to Gov. Tim Pawlenty and the Republican-controlled House who insisted that state government tighten its belt to balance the state books. That hasn't been the case across the nation. Indeed, many states, faced with budget shortfalls during the economic slowdown, are marching forward with higher taxes.
HASTINGS -- Section 1AA is the toughest section in the state for boys golf. Yes, Section 4AA boosts two of the state's best teams in White Bear Lake and Elk River. But Section 1 has five legitimate state contenders and a handful of individuals capable of winning a state title. After Day 1 of the section meet last Thursday, Red Wing was in good shape. The Wingers held a one-stroke lead with an impressive score of 296.
